    KHL Eastern Conference Quarterfinals
    (2)Magnitogorsk 4 vs. (7)Ekaterinburg 2
    Magnitogorsk Leads the Series 3-2
    Vasily Koshechkin, Magnitogorsk, DNP

    Another workmanlike effort puts the Lightning into a 1st place tie in the Atlantic.

    TB-2
    TOR-1

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 1 goal on 32 shots for the victory. After struggling to find the right formula for keeping Vasiy sharp and developing earlier in the year, the Lightning organization appears to have figured it out. His spot starts with Syracuse have been working and he was sharp as a Ginsu again this evening.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    4:53 TB Johnson(10), (Kucherov, Coburn)
    15:28 TB Johnson(11), (unassisted)

    Third Period
    17:45 TOR Kadri(12), (Rielly, Gardiner)

    Tyler Johnson and Vasilevskiy were the game's first and second stars.

    The Lightning played a pretty strong road First Period and probably deserved to have a 1-2 goal lead coming out of the opening frame. But, with Garret Sparks playing well and getting plenty of luck from his friend the iron, the Lightning couldn't quite build up the big margin through 40 minutes, and come the Third Period they were running on fumes against a younger, fresher team. But, at no point did they panic. They played a poised game and they protected the lead and got the 2 points.

    The Lightning's big playoff acquisition: the healthy return of Jason Garrison. It was not a moment too soon, either, with Andrej Sustr leaving the game in the Second Period with an unspecified malady.

    With the victory, the Lightning have tied the Panthers at 78 points for the top spot in the Atlantic, with the Panthers holding a game in hand. The Lightning also have picked up 6 points so far in this 10-game segment of the season, meaning they have 7 more games to pick up the remaining 6 points they need to hit that minimum target of 12 points. In other words, they've set themselves up nicely to potentially build some padding in the standings for the first time this year. And, now that the calendar is flipping over to March, that's exactly what you want.

    Nikita Nesterov had 2 penalty minutes, 3 shots, and 3 hits in 15:03. That's Nikita's 40th game of the season, meaning his next appearance will graduate him from prospect status on the website. Marchessault's still got a decent chance to get to graduation this year, but that's about it. It's a far cry from where the Lightning were three years ago with rookies becoming NHL'ers left and right.

    Jack Edwards' tears are sweet.

    TB-4
    BOS-1

    Ben Bishop allowed 1 goal on 33 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    6:01 BOS Miller(5), (Kemppainen, Ferraro)
    11:19 TB Killorn(12), (Stralman, Callahan)(PP)
    14:39 TB Callahan(9), (Killorn)

    Second Period
    8:18 TB Callahan(10), (Stamkos, Stralman)(PP)
    10:04 TB Stamkos(28), (unassisted)(PS)

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Ryan Callahan, Steven Stamkos, and Bishop were the game's three stars.

    Right now, the Lightning are playing fairly tight defense and they're pretty ruthless in capitalizing on their chances. The combination is absolutely potent, and these laughers where they build a 3 goal lead at the end of 40 minutes never get old. They're also really helpful on the front end of back-to-backs where you can conserve energy for the back end by playing an efficient Third Period. It's amazing how easy they made it look tonight given how close the two teams are in the standings, what was at stake, and the fact that Boston has been hell on earth for the Lightning over the past couple of decades.

    With 20 games left to go in the season, the Lightning are 2 points back of the Panthers for the division lead. They're also 1 ahead in the win column and 4 ahead in ROW. Florida's margin is purely built on loser points, and I suspect Florida's recent flurry of trade acquisitions was prompted by the realization they're a paper tiger. Go get your banner, Lightning.

    Jonathan Marchessault was -1 with 1 shot, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 8:56.

    Nikita Nesterov was -1 with 1 blocked shot in 15:17.

    Crunch steal a wild, improbable win.

    SYR-5
    BNG-4 (SO)

    Adam Wilcox allowed 4 goals on 32 shots before stopping 4 of 5 in the penalty shot session for the 5-4 SO win.

    First Period
    BNG Puempel, (14) (Varone, Kostka), 1:19 (PP)
    BNG Leduc, (8) , 3:46

    Second Period
    BNG Puempel, (15) (Akeson), 8:53

    Third Period
    SYR Blunden, (17) (Richard, DeAngelo), 5:42 (PP)
    SYR Blunden, (18) (DeAngelo, Richard), 9:32 (PP)

    Shootout
    SYR- Blunden, Peca
    BNG- Akeson

    Mike Blunden and Tanner Richard were the game's first and third stars.

    A 3 goals deficit in pro hockey SHOULD be a death sentence. Syracuse improbably erased a 3 goal deficit after 40 minutes only to see ex-Lightning property Mike Kostka put Bingo ahead with under a minute to go. Not to be deterred, Tye McGinn tied the game with under 10 seconds to go before Matthew Peca eventually put it away in the Shootout. When you cough up a 3 goal lead like that, it's emotionally devastating. When you come back and win a game by erasing one, it can be emotionally galvanizing. We'll see if the Crunch get a bounce off of this win.
